The Night

Sun, 01/12/2014 - 03:08 -- Kaci

Shadows playing tricks on me

shallow is the night

The wind whispers lies to me

deceitful is the night

Together they weave fairytales too good to be true

Then break them before my eyes, split into two

 

Rain drops on my skin

careless is the night

Tears run down my face

heedless is the night

I turn towards a distant sound

taunting is the night

I cringe as i realize

lying is the night

 

I whisper your name

quiet is the night

I cry out the same

silent is the night

I plea, I beg, I bargain

patient is the night 

 

Soundlessly I crumble

oblivious is the night

Falling apart

I

fade

into

the night
